    Dogs Don't Wear Pants

    ★★★★½

    According to my all-time stats this is actually the first Finnish film I've ever even seen so I'll be doing some research but am also open towards some recommendations for what Finnish films I should be watching next. So as for this film itself it's one that masterfully deals with it's themes of grief, trauma and acceptance.

    Dealing with a middle aged man named Juha (Pekka Strang) who lost his wife due to an accidental drowning. When he went to…

    ★★★★½

    Another Bong Joon-ho film ticked off the list with just his debut Barking Dogs Never Bite left to go and this was an unsurprisingly incredible one to say the least.

This is a family drama that mixes elements of dark comedy and horror masterfuly and is a…

The film was directed by renowned filmaker David Lean and Peter O'Toole starred as Lawrence in one of the greatest performances I've ever seen in a film and I'll go into more detail with that soon. So it was beautifully shot in 70mm with such care…

    Raging Bull

    ★★★★★

    Martin Scorsese had suffered a near fatal cocaine overdose just before this was made and the biography of Jake LaMotta was shown to Scorsese by De Niro during a hospital visit and that's how we eventually got this masterpiece. Scorsese is said to have felt this could have been his last film and it's intensity and rawness can actually be hard to stomach at times but it feels so personal and you just can't look away. The beautiful black and…
